How to Choose a Moses Basket for Your Baby
Choosing a Moses Basket for your newborn baby is a delightful experience with many to choose from in wicker or maize and we aim to provide you with all the information you need with reviews from the major manufacturers such as Izziwotnot, Mamas and Papas and Lollipop lane to select from an extensive range of baby moses baskets including bedding, sheets, covers and mattresses.
What are Moses Baskets ?
A moses basket is a wicker or maize style crib for a new born baby up to about 4 or 5 months in age. It is not necessarily used as its main bed (you'll probably have a cot or swinging crib for that) but is a portable soft bed that can be moved around whilst the baby is asleep or as a travel cot.
Most moses baskets come with a stand that you place the basket upon which you can put in the nursery.
They are very light weight with 2 grab handles so can be easily moved just make sure that the handles are strong enough to lift the basket up with the baby inside (if you are unsure, lift the baby out before moving it).
Moses Basket Accessories
As with most purchases your moses basket will still need additional items to make baby comfortable and here are the most popular accessories:
- A mattress - depending on your requirements as there are many mattresses on the market including hypoallergenic and different types of softness
- General bedding - such as sheets and blankets
- A basket cover or canopy - good if you have pets in the house and need to keep them away and to keep baby warm in the colder months
- Perhaps a rocking moses basket stand - if you want to rock your baby (rather than a standard static stand)
- Hanging toys - like it baby's cot you can get a mobile or some toys to hand from the hood of the basket to keep it amused !
